Super excited to be joining the last show in New York at Ka Ora (I live) at ORA Gallery. I have only a few sculpture pieces on show - some of which some have already sold! If you are in New York, please pop by, there are loads of awesome work from so many talented kiwi artists.
About the Exhibition:
KA ORA (I LIVE) is the last show for ORA Gallery New York and a celebration of the extraordinary life of a small Chelsea gallery. ORA has been a window into Aotearoa New Zealand and a marae (community hub) for many New Zealanders in New York.
Gallery creator Giarna TeKanawa took up an unexpected opportunity to open a gallery and generously welcomed a broad range of artists from Aotearoa, revealing a vibrant slice of our homeland’s creative talent to New York. What began as a three-month pop-up show continued to weave itself into a rich lineage of exhibits, often organically emerging through connections from one artist to the next. As ORA settled itself into 7th Ave, it also welcomed a growing whanau (extended family) of New Zealanders living in New York or visiting, a small patch of Aotearoa for all of us.
